Natalie Spencer looks at the best of printed work produced using stock images from photo libraries

Macmillan Publishers was responsible for the design of the book jacket of Damascus Gate by Robert Stone, using a sourced image by photographer Michael Trevillion, selected from The Trevillion Picture Library. The original desert scene contained a picture of a camel at rest. This was cropped, flipped, the image tinted and the snake rings were superimposed. Damascus Gate tells the story of a journey through the moral and religious ambiguities that haunt this ancient city. Tatina Semprini at The Trevillion Picture Library
